Darling Girls, I have a complicated story to tell you. It's one I've held back for almost three years now as I've worked through one of the most difficult times I've experienced in my social and religious education. You were uniquely involved, and I want you to have the story,... Continue reading

Dear Girls, I went to the doctor recently to find out how much closer to menopause I am now than I was last year. During the appointment, along with the usual tests that are ordered, I was offered a new test to determine if I have a certain cancer gene.... Continue reading

How lucky am I to be your Mommy? I think the heavens dropped you from above, my sweet Sophia, with your sparkling eyes and constant grin. You wake up and immediately, you're talking and happy and excited to be alive. You make everyone around you smile. You're the best snugglebug... Continue reading

Darling Izz, One of the most difficult moments of motherhood was the day we dismantled the crib, signaling that the season of babies had passed and would not come again. We made so many special preparations for you. The perfect sheets, the perfect shade of pink, bees all 'round your... Continue reading

One of the reasons I started blogging was to commiserate with other menopausal mommies. I sort of expected them to come out of the woodwork once I let the secret out that, hey, it's OK that your uterus is shriveling up and you're still changing diapers! Let's get rid of... Continue reading

So, that guy - the one with the white jacket and blue face-mask? The one whose eyes are smiling at you from beyond the white drape, holding just beyond your sight a long, thin tube with some stuff in it? The one who you might have fantasized about once or... Continue reading

My girls: Sometimes, admitting failings can be cathartic, allowing us to let go and move forward. I've decided to share with you one of my miserable failings, hoping I may now be able to conquer it, and hoping you won't suffer the same way I do. Let me just get... Continue reading

Dear Girls: I had a lovely discussion with a friend this morning about spiritualism and existentialism. Our conversation danced around children and family and how our lives are meant to teach us lessons that are sometimes difficult. One of the many things we touched upon is what it means to...

Darling Daughters: You girls have already become addicts to advertising. Yes, I let you watch TV a little bit each day and I know you'll be in years of therapy because of it. For the most part, I let you watch what you want unless or until I see gratuitous... Continue reading

When I asked my friend, Naomi, to be my first guest blogger, and knowing what a devoted mother she is, I knew she would have stories to tell. I've read this one now a half-dozen times, and I still feel a little piece of me fall away each time the... Continue reading

I knew the day would come when we would be at a store in front of the "Ugly Doll" display, and I would utter those fateful words (slow mo), " I can make one of those!". I call this "The Even Uglier Doll." Continue reading

I've been working really hard lately on my issues with grocery shoppers. I used to love grocery shopping and for awhile I even went with my best girlfriend who lived in the same apartment complex I did. She would show me foods that I had never tried or give me... Continue reading

I strongly believe that certain souls are placed into your life to teach you something you need to know that is spiritually significant. My friend, Naomi, is one such person in my life. We worked together in the 80's in banking, where I was lucky enough to learn some very... Continue reading

My darling girls: I was thinking about Super-Glue this weekend. When you get Super-Glue on your fingers and then press them together, they stick, right? What's the next thing you do? I don't know what you do - maybe you are calm, cool, and collected in the face of fingers... Continue reading

My Dear Daughters: We will spend lots of time talking about your health. We'll talk about how to care for your body, how to feed it, exercise it, nourish it, respect it. I'll tell you the mistakes I made and why. We won't focus on what we look like, how... Continue reading

A week ago today I woke up the morning after a dinner party with my lips tingling and my feet itching. It was the start of one of those life-changing events that I never quite expect and would love to forgo, despite thinking myself an adventurous, go-with-it, kind of girl.... Continue reading

by Lorie Fuller We joined the YMCA at the beginning of the summer, partly to give the kiddos access to the pool and some activities, partly to give me a chance to get physical. I termed it, "The Naked Y," because there's a bright-shiny-new-pool with bright-shiny-new-bikini-mommies. Oh, and the yoga... Continue reading

by Lorie Fuller So, my husband brought home my favorite Great Harvest Bread Company cinnamon rolls this morning after taking the kids to swim lessons. I know, I know--that makes him freaking fabulous compared to some husbands, so what can I possibly complain about? I happen to be one of... Continue reading
